Strawberry Jelly Cheese Cupcakes


Just love the idea on how Mimy made this jelly cheese in the cupcakes. I followed her make these for my son to bring to his student care for sharing with the rest today :) Just hope the kids will like it.

Here, I used recipe published by the Sunday Times via Mimy Bakery House, you may also check the other recipe that I tried earlier. Both are delicious, however, if you prefer more creamy texture on the cheesecake, you may like this one.



Source : published in the Sunday Times with modification

Ingredients:
Biscuit Base:
170 gr Digestive biscuits, crushed
85 gr Melted butter

Cheese Filling:
250 gr Cream cheese (room temp)
250 gr Condensed milk
Juice of 1 Lemon
2 tsp Gelatin
50ml Hot Boiling Water

Topping:
1 box of Tortally Jelly Crystals – Raspberry flavour
250 ml Hot Boiling water
250 ml Cold water

1 punnet of Strawberries

Method:
- For Biscuit base: Blend biscuits until fine and then mix with melted butter and mix thoroughly. Press into the cupcake mould. Chill to let it harden.
- For Filling: Stir gelatine powder with boiling hot water until it dissolves. Set aside.
- Cream the cheese until smooth, add in condensed milk & lemon juice till well combined. Add in gelatine mixture gradually and cream until smooth. Pour on top of chilled biscuits.
- Arrange strawberries slices (gently pressed) on top of cheese fillings. Leave to set in the fridge overnight. (I leave it in the freezer for 1-2 hour to set)
- For Topping: Dissolve Jelly in hot water then pour in cold water and stir well. Let it cool.
- Pour over the set cream cheese filling and put into the fridge again to let it set until firm.
- Ready to serve.

  4. Hi DG,
    This is a brilliant idea for making this in a small cupcakes. It's easy to serve and nice to eat in a small cup cases.
    I have been aiming to try this out since sawing this in Mimi's blog.
    Have a nice weekend!

  6. 1) May I know the brand of cream cheese that you use ?
    2) Is it full-fat or low-fat ?

    1. Hi Anon,
      1) For cream cheese, my preference will be KRAFT - Original Philadelphia, will be around $5.80 per 250gr. However, Elle&Vire, also not bad, if you want to have good deal price around $18 for 1.36 kg and you can get it from Sunlik or Kitchen Capers
      2) Full fat is fattening but nicer :)
